zenon in Energy & Infrastructure

zenon is a software system for energy automation from COPA-DATA. In the field of Energy and Infrastructure, zenon controls and monitors equipment for energy distribution and for the generation of electricity from renewable energy sources.


zenon is frequently implemented in substation automation. zenon technologies are used for on-site operation, at control center level and as a gateway. Engineers can implement complex requirements and major projects very quickly. For example, safe redundancy modes can be configured out-of-the-box. Equipment operation is thus robust and highly available.
